Lions strengthen their ties with Trinity

The Tuggeranong Lions Football Club continues to strengthen its ties with Trinity Christian School.

AFL Canberra with the support of the Lions ran a five week Auskick training session for all the students from Kindergarten to Year 5.

Volunteers from the Tuggeranong Lions have assisted with training sessions during lunch times to help develop the James Hird Cup squad. The Lions have offered gifted and talented students who play other sports and would like to try their hand at Australian Rules football a scholarship which includes one seasons registration and a player’s pack. Two students to benefit from these scholarships are Tim Noack (Year 5) and Andrew Noack (Year 6). Both boys play Premier League Soccer and are now developing into future stars for the Lions. The Tuggeranong Lions are still keen to award three more of these scholarships for 2013 in their under 12s and 13s teams. So if you play a different code of sport and would like to try AFL please contact Mark Vanderstoep.

The Tuggeranong Lions continues to support AFL at Trinity through the donation of football resources which have included footballs for the school and a donation of $500 towards new AFL playing jumpers.

If you are interested in playing AFL look at the local club that supports your school, Tuggeranong Lions Junior Football Club.
